About the role

We are looking for an ambitious, organised and motivated Deputy Director to help lead our organisation.

You will lead the fundraising, finance and operations of Ministry of Stories to ensure an effective, resilient and sustainable organisation that meets the growing needs and ambitions of our young writers, their families and schools.

Who we’re looking for

We are looking for a confident and organised leader to work closely with the Director to continue the growth and resilience of our organisation. You’ll drive successful fundraising and trading income, and understand how our communications can support this.

You will be a forward planner with an ability to respond to opportunity and manage risk. With keen attention to detail as well as the overview, you’ll have strong financial management skills.

You will enjoy working in a supportive, busy and fun environment and be motivated by our commitment to champion the writer in every child.

Our Schools programme has grown significantly over the last four years, and we know there is the potential for us to do a lot more.

Our attention-grabbing shop, Hoxton Street Monster Supplies, continues to serve our monster customer base – in store, online and through our wholesale partners.
